Kampe, T and Batson, G (2020) 'Dancing critical somatics – an emancipatory education for the future? Thomas Kampe in dialogue with Glenna Batson.' In: Whatley, S, Huxley, M, David, A and Hayward-Smith, L, eds. Dancefields. Dance Books, Alton, pp. 154-185. (Forthcoming)

Abstract

This co-authored chapter mainly advances the role of somatics within dance education as an emancipatory and world-constituting education. It aligns itself with ecologist Edgar Morin’s call for an ‘Education for the Future’ (Morin 1999) asking for an educational ‘Anthropo-Ethics’ towards the development of a critical planetary conscience and citizenship (1999: 57). It suggests that the construction of somatics as critical studies within dance studies can aid the facilitating of Morin’s call for the study of the human bio-psycho-social complexity and uncertainty, acting as educational agent ‘to humanize humanity’(1999: 10).
